Northern Ireland’s homegrown pizzeria brand, Little Wing, has announced an investment of £450,000 in a new restaurant in Whiteabbey, Co. Antrim, creating 25 new jobs.
The arrival of Little Wing Whiteabbey will bring the popular pizza chain’s total number of branches across Northern Ireland to nine.
The restaurant will cater for 60 guests and serve authentic, made-to-order Naples-style pizzas cooked in traditional six foot Wood Stone pizza ovens when it opens in November.
The latest expansion will increase the total number of people employed by Little Wing in Northern Ireland to 185.
Luke Wolsey, managing director at Little Wing, said: “We have been exploring continued expansion of the Little Wing brand across Northern Ireland, so when this space became available in Whiteabbey, we felt it was the perfect opportunity to serve the community in Newtownabbey.
Little Wing will begin recruiting for a variety of positions, including management roles, waiting staff, pizza chefs and kitchen porters in the coming weeks.
